A tobacco industry advocate's training film
Apparently produced by Phillip Morris sometime after the 1988 US Surgeon General's "The Health Consequences of Smoking -- Nicotine Addiction" report, this film features international experts decrying the inaccuracies of the report and the benign and beneficial nature of nicotine and its delivery system, tobacco.
Very sincere scientists reassure the viewer that regular tobacco use is good for the productivity of the smoker and no more harmful than breath mints and coffee as regular habits go.
No mention of long term hazards, but "smokers get a good deal of enjoyment out of watching smoke."
